Paradise in name and reality, we could go on forever about the wonderful Paradis Beachcomber Resort & Spa, Mauritius. This is escapism, personified.
Firstly, the setting of the Paradis Beachcomber Resort & Spa is simply sublime. It is located on the Morne Peninsula with the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Le Morne Brabant Mountain in the background, in fact, it’s everywhere you look on this resort. This could be the best view in all of Mauritius.
The view is absolutely sublime, matched only by the three-kilometre beach of fine white sand that simply won us over. We spent hours relaxing on it, and when we had little bursts of energy, we learnt to paddleboard in the shallow sea, enjoying the crystal clear water. It was our favourite pastime at Paradis, but we really enjoyed everything else too.
Our Ocean Beachfront Suite at the Beachcomber Paradis was just stunning, located right on the water’s edge. We loved that it was unfussy and understated, with a huge, contemporary living area in case we ever got bored of sitting out on our sunloungers – let it be known we spent very little time indoors. The property’s four amazing restaurants explore a range of culinary trends, with a creative and whimsical edge, ensuring no meal was ever just satisfactory. We particularly enjoyed Blue Marlin, where cosy sundowners merged seamlessly into delicious seafood dinners.

|The Paradis Beachcomber offers the ultimate duality for those into golf and those who aren’t, with the property fringed by a beautiful, turquoise lagoon to one side and its spectacular, professional 18-hole golf course on the other. Or perhaps if you’re like us, get really greedy on holiday and do a bit of both.|
